MACABRE MONDAY

HEY!!!! Its monday and i'm actually posting MACABRE MONDAYS new challenge!
... your challenge this week: is................

"Alas, poor Yorick!"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based skullified project in a suitably macabre fashion.
Skulls, skulls, and more skulls!
Images, papers, embellishments, fragments!
Use 'em if you've got 'em!

We are being sponsored this week by our own CREEPY GLOWBUGG.... $20 to spend in her ETSY STORE..... COFFIN EARRINGS!! CREEPY CUTE AT ITS BEST!

Heres what i came up with this week.... 2 pendants/necklaces.
The pendants have stamped images, coloured with promarkers, that i have mounted into reclaimed mounts... and then glazed with diamond glaze.

Just incase you're wondering..... i cracked the glaze on both to make 'em look 'old'.... when i dont want to crack my glaze it happens easily... with these... especially the adult skull... i actually had to hit it with a hammer!

Both necklaces are made using lovely vintage green glass beads,& olde gold coloured chain.

I hope you can join us this week.... SKULLS ARE ONE OF MY FAVOURITES!

I shall also enter these necklaces into the following challenges.... most of them being GREEN...... SO HOPEFULLY THEY'LL BE ACCEPTABLE.

  8. Hey girl, sorry I missed you - I was in San Diego with Markus, who is here with me now visiting and drawing more images. I just perused your little goodies. Sometimes I am like wow, this woman amazes me all the time. I just love the skulls! I see so much into the darkness of your art and really love it. I love those rusty nails - are they real? LOL! I'm thinking about you sweetness; lots o love, hugs, and mushy stuff!
